‘Bit gutted’, ‘Surprising’ – These Stoke City fans react to major squad announcement



Stoke City have confirmed their retained and released list, with Jordan Cousins the most high-profile exit from the club.

The midfielder joined in 2019 but he struggled to establish himself as a regular in the two years since, making 39 appearances in that time, and his departure was announced on the Potters official site.

Further decisions were made on several youngsters, with Ryan Corrigan one of those to be released from the U23s.
